FARMINGTON, Utah -- Coach Vance Downs has coached at Farmington Junior High for 35 years. He's retiring at the end of the year, but not before impacting countless players over that time.

Many of those same players overcame difficult logistics to plan a ceremony for Downs that took place after Tuesday's basketball game. Hundreds packed the gymnasium in Farmington to be part of it.

Among the surprises was the announcement that they had raised enough money to redo the floor and name the gymnasium after Downs.
